lincoln used. we'll give you a close look at this extraordinary piece of american history. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> let's begin this hour with the breaking news. algeria's official news agency has just announced the end of a rescue operation aimed at freeing hostages, including americans held by islamic militants. u.s. government officials tell cnn that may not necessarily, though, be the case. let's get straight to our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence working this story for us. chris, be what is the very latest that you're hearing? >> wolf, the latest that we're getting from u.s. officials is that some americans may have escaped but some may still be held by those hostage takers and they are still seeing signs perhaps of some intermittent fighting, suggesting that perhaps this isn't over yet. as the hostage situation stretched to a second day, u.s. officials scrambled to find a resolution and determine the state of the americans still in militant hands. >> this incident will be resolved, we hope with a minimum loss of life. but when you deal with t
have to pick one item it may be this the famed lincoln bible the actual one touched by the hands of lincoln and barack obama. >> this bibe is as ordinary as it could possibly be. it is family bible printed by ox nard university press. it is a little dressed up because it is a family bible but it is a very ordinary 19th century bible until lincoln put his hands on it. >> but he didn't keep it. it got to the library of congress which will be on display for a few weeks next to lincoln's inaugural address. if you would like to see the lincoln bible you can do so for a limited time. it will go on display two days after the inauguration. next wednesday at the library of congress. it will remain on display until february 18 which is president's day. as far as the exhibit here at the museum it only runs through january 27. >> very nice. thank you so much. coming up here at 5:00, a big comeback at the box office. we're going to hear what arch campbell thinks about arnold schwarzenegger's comeback. >> the man accused of killing his girlfriend and his young
to be a hoax. >>> president obama will take the oath of office uses president lincoln's bible. we got our hands on this historic artifact today. >>> toll? what millions. rv.a27 >>> right now it's just cold rain. >>> dozens of vdot trucks have been out since 3:00, preteething the highway as a precaution. let's check in with doug on what the conditions are expected to be tonight. >> they're going to change over to snow, most likely one the next hour or so. this is into spotsylvania county, only about 15 miles away from fredericksburg. they do have? snow. you can see it starting to coat at least some of the decks in the road. they'll continue to see that through the rest of the evening hours. this is the only area that will see accumulating snow. you notice that a lot of this is starting to tang into snow. that's what we'll continue to see overnight. once again not a big deal. i think the roads should be fine. southern maryland, the roads should stay fine, temperatures have been well above freezing through out much of the day. we'll talk much more about this. in just a minute. >> doug, thank you,
long. i don't think re'll follow abraham lincoln and just use 705 words, but he'll take credit, certainly, for some of the things he has done but it's going to be hard for those be a historymake can address. >> washington's was the shortest, 135 words. i'd like that. i just like short speeches. historians have said abraham lincoln -- speaking of lincoln -- and he is going to use lincoln's bible -- hi second inaugural was the greatest speech of any kind according to some historians. do you think the president is going to try to do something, say something new and exciting to orchestrate a wow moment? >> i think he'll try. he likes to do that. he likes to write speeches and give them. he thinks this is one of his great talents. i think he believes with a public approval rating of 52%, which is better it's been the years, he has a mandate from this election, his detractors disagree but he is probably going to try to say this is a critical moment, we can come out of the abyss, we can come together some change things. it's just going to be hard to get to a point where it really reso
with the president to ask him favors or get their appointments and, of course, that didn't change with lincoln. changed after garfield who was assassinated but the ranks have really closed around the presidency, really hard to get to him. has that had an affect on the role of the president over the past century? >> that's a great question. first of all, the white house itself was open. up until the of world war ii in europe, people could have picnics on the white house lawn. >> right. >> before then people would stroll into the white house. the president would bump into someone at the white house. people would come and ask the president for jobs. after pearl harbor, that's when the security apparatus goes up around the president. but the other thing to mention is what we're using right now, the power of television. what he will vision has done is in one sense made it more intimate with the president but also created a certain distance as well. >> you know, steve, with he talk about george washington, abraham lincoln, i always put grant in the underappreciated category. there were a lot of clun
% of their kids registering. 74 turned up. that was great. lincoln and galileo and lowell was part of this program. i want to thank the students for this. i want to reach out to the families and the k-12 and universities. san francisco state we were able to register 3,000 students. and we had the highest number of provisional ballots. we had 600 on that campus. and so this upcoming year we have a few things on the agenda. the department of director is up for review. that is starting in may, and we are starting work on that already. the director is interested in improving accessibility issues. s -- we have requirements of the machines old. and we have received complaints of voters not able to access the cards or not seeing the ballots. so we will work on that this coming year. and is the other issue is the issue of privacy around voter information. one of the big of the challenges that the department has is to be sure that people get the information they need to vote. many voters prefer this information to be kept private. we have to figure out a way to either have an e-mail or phone number. it ser
would be on your list? > > you are looking at, "lincoln" has already made $150 million at the box office. got a slight bump after the oscar nominations this week. but a lot of these films, they have been out already. i think the one film that is going to get a bump is probably "silver linings playbook," because it's finally going to expand to about 2500 screens this weekend, and you are going to see that one, on the wave of eight oscar nominations, people are going to say, "oh, i haven't seen that one yet." and now it's going to be in more theaters, so people will probably catch up with that one. > i was wondering about "the beasts of the southern wild," as well. because it really wasn't talked about until now. > > it got- obviously, out of sundance last year there was a lot of praise, and when it opened over the summer it was actually one of the bigger arthouse hits. it did $10 million, but that's pretty good for a movie like that. it came out on dvd and blu-ray in december, and the critics picked up on it, and it just sort of spilled over into the oscars. and good for it, because it's

, of course, lincoln's with malice toward none, with charity for all. speechwriters say that the challenge for president obama will be to be short, focused and inspirational. >> the question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small but whether it works, whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford and retirement that is dignified. >> that's what his presidency is all. about. >> reporter: the question for his second inaugural is whether he can unite america around that idea. >> if we refuse to let this journey end. >> reporter: bruce leshan, wusa9. >>> with the president and congress still debating how to pay our debts and renew america, the stakes for this second feature are perhaps just as high as for his first. >>> plenty of roads will be closed for the festivities. log onto www.wusa9.com to see your best way around town this weekend and on monday as well. we'll also have a list of items you can't take with you if you're going to monday's ceremony. >> it is a long list. you'll want to take a look at it before you head down there.
